MaVerick - MultiValue Database Management System

MaVerick is a MultiValue database management system. MultiValue databases are said to be one of the computer industry's best kept secrets. First appearing over 30 years ago as PICK, they have continued to evolve through various commercial vendors, and are still in active development today. They are very resource friendly, are incredibly fast, feature a very user friendly data retrieval and reporting language (variously called ACCESS or English), and a rapid application development language based originally on Dartmouth Basic. The MaVerick project is an attempt to create an open source variant, written in Java.
